11 Reasons For

HP Has Good Notebook PC Reviews

Medium processor core notebook PCs manufactured by HP have good reviews on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all laptops (not just medium processor core notebook PCs) and found that HP also has good reviews across its entire range.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This notebook PC supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many comparable spec notebook PCs that have been around for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory

The EliteBook 850 has a fairly big maximum on-board graphics adapter memory (16 gigabytes) compared to most of the other notebook PCs of this type and age. The smallest maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of comparable spec notebook PCs that were launched around the same time as the EliteBook 850 is 1.7GB, the biggest is 16GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 11GB.

Chart Edit

Four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports

Chart Edit

1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed

Most laptops of a similar age and type to it support a 133MHz processor memory clock speed. In addition, this laptop supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds. Across all similar spec notebook PCs that came out around the same time as the EliteBook 850 the memory clock speeds supported by processor ranges from 133MHz (worst) to 1,866MHz (best).

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Screen Size

Portable PCs of this spec and age have screen sizes of between 11" and 18". The EliteBook 850 has one of the bigger screen sizes (15.6 inches) amongst portable PCs of this age.

We compared this laptop to all the other 15.6" portable PCs and we think cheaper notebook PCs such as the Toshiba Satellite C50-B[plb_2256586_price], and the Lenovo G50-70[plb_2707942_price] is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a notebook PC with a bigger screen size then you might want to consider the Acer Aspire E5-772[plb_2984402_price] (17.3") which is also cheaper.

Has a Front Camera

The HP EliteBook 850 has a front camera, as do most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that were released around the same time as the EliteBook 850.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative portable PCs with a front camera currently available including cheaper portable PCs such as the Acer Extensa EX2510[plb_2531905_price], or the Asus X555LA[plb_2947144_price].

We compared all the other notebook PCs which also have a front camera to this laptop and we think the DELL Latitude 15[plb_2749075_price] is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard

It is worth considering other notebook PCs which also have a full-size keyboard including the Acer Extensa EX2510[plb_2531905_price], or the Asus X555LA[plb_2947144_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Only HDD Storage Medium

This notebook PC has an HDD storage medium, which is the most commonly found storage medium on medium processor core notebook PCs that have been around for a comparable time to it. HDD is a traditional storage drive which stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are slower than other forms of storage such as solid state drives (SSD) and flash drives.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other notebook PCs that have an HDD storage media currently available including the Toshiba Satellite C50-B[plb_2256586_price], or the Acer Aspire E5-511[plb_2913136_price] which is cheaper.

We compared all the other 4GB internal memory laptops to this laptop and we think cheaper portable PCs such as the Toshiba Satellite C50-B[plb_2256586_price] is also worth considering.

Laptops with a bigger internal memory that might be worth looking at include the Toshiba C55[plb_2942232_price] (6GB), or the Medion Akoya E6415[plb_2882074_price] (6GB) which is also cheaper.
